Indigenous Arts

Informed by Indigenous cultures and worldviews, we offer programs in all disciplines for emerging to established Indigenous artists. Our programs are highly transformative, situate rigour and exploration at their centre, and are inspired by ‘power of place’ here in Treaty 7 territory.

Through outstanding performances, concerts, residencies, presentations, workshops, talks, and exhibitions, Indigenous Arts contributes to strong and vibrant Indigenous arts communities in Canada and around the globe.

An update on our offerings

With the evolving and ever-changing realities of Covid continuing to impact Banff Centre, we will be offering a smaller palette of Indigenous Arts residencies for the 2023/24 season.

Banff Centre remains dedicated to supporting Indigenous Artists across many disciplines which will be reflected in our evolving offerings.
